Steuben Parade – Saturday, September 10, 2016

This is a great way to 'kick off' the new school year and show your enthusiasm for German! All children are invited to participate, even if they are new to our school. Children should wear dirndls or leiwl/lederhosen or anything “German-like”-black/red/gold. We hope you will make every effort to participate, since this is an excellent opportunity to teach your children to be proud of their heritage. Parents are encouraged to march along, too! Have fun visiting the German Fest on Lincoln Avenue after the parade!
